Casting has been announced for the upcoming production of ‘Chiaroscuro’ at the Bush Theatre in London.

Directed by Lynette Linton (Sweat, Richard II), the play will star Shiloh Coke (Misty Bush Theatre, Emila Globe Theatre), Preeya Kalidas (Eastenders, BBC Asian Radio, Bend It Like Beckham), singer-songwriter Anoushka Lucas (Jesus Christ Superstar Regents Park Open Air Theatre) and Gloria Onitiri (Hadestown National Theatre).

Written by Jackie Kay the piece explores the experiences of women of colour across generations and celebrates the many intersections of female identity from the 1980s to now and how women chose to identify themselves.

The creative team includes musical direction by Shiloh Coke, movement direction by Annie Lunette Deakin Foster, set design by Moi Tran, lighting design by Jose Tevar and sound design by Richard Hammarton.

Live music and spoken word collide in an explosive gig-theatre event that breathes new life into Scottish National Poet Jackie Kay’s 1986 masterpiece.

Chiaroscuro will run from 31 August 2019 until 5 October 2019 at the Bush Theatre, 7 Uxbridge Road, London, W12 8LJ.
